3:32pmmach one on john stotherd
  • As flight controller of Cox Bank International Airport (retired), I enjoyed one of his inaugural flights, when his intended co–pilot, who was a pilot with Dan Air, on seeing the micro light, lost his nerve and forfeited his perch to me.
    We did a triangular trip, Woore – Wybunbury – Coxbank, Runway One!
    I remember visiting Hope Hospital, Salford on his return from France with his first broken neck (skiing). Second time in North Staffs when his reserve fuel line failed, crashing nearby.
    I remember skating with him on the Shroppie near his shop on decidedly thin ice by his shop.
    Some man, some neck!

2:53pmWLG on Audlem bungalow for sale ?
  • Thanks DaveR! Posting this message on chatbox must have been a good luck charm as my Mother has now found the property she wanted and is looking forward to living in Audlem soon.

11:11amPeter Morgan on Feed the Birds
  • Normally I have ceased filling the bird feeder by this time of the year as there is plenty of insect life around for their chicks to eat. However, due to the cold weather this spring, insects are in very short supply and the bird feeder is being emptied at an amazing rate, far quicker than in the depths of winter as the birds seek to keep their young fed.
    If we want to see plentiful birds in our gardens next year we should assist this years hatch by feeding now, otherwise, if this cold spell continues, they may not make it through in any great numbers.

  • Hi WLG
    There is a two bed detached bungalow at 15 Moorsfield Avenue that still has a 'For Sale' sign in the front garden

7:41pmBloodwise on Carnival
  • A good time had by all this weekend, but spare a thought for the Charity Stalls on the playing field.These were not well supported compared with other years & consequently less money raised for these very good causes. On leaving the field at 4pm on Monday, to find a packed Lord Combermere which is great but leaves the stalls out in the cold somewhat.

7:16pmWebteam on Vaccination query
  • The webteam thank MrsT for her query about vaccinations and is seeking a response for you.

    Editor's comment: Response now received – see News story Friday morning 29th May.

5:54pmMrsT on Holiday NHS vaccination refusal
  • Hi I was just wondering if any one can tell me if they have been refused a holiday vaccination which is free on the NHS, at the Audlem Medical Practice, with an explanation of it is unfortunately due to resources even though it WAS advertised as a service on the Medical Practice's own website at the time of enquiry?
    The 2 other local surgery's Nantwich & Wrenbury offer free vaccinations that are covered by the NHS, for some reason as an Audlem resident we are penalised. However we are offered a service, that would mean travelling to Chester or Liverpool with a cost of around £50 for the vaccination and additional travel costs. I have heard of a few people with the same gripe
    Looks like good old rural Audlem gets the rough end of the stick once again!

    Editor's comment: The answer to your query is being published as a news story on Friday morning, 29th May, with a full response from Audlem Medical Practice.

1:14pmWLG on Audlem bungalow for sale ?
  • My mother has sold her own house and is looking to move to Audlem ( she is a cash buyer and is not in a chain ) We have registered with all the local estate agents but there is nothing suitable on the market at present – ideally a bungalow within walking distance of the village. If anyone knows of this type of property soon to come on the market could you please let me know ? Many thanks.
